Really. Really. Liking what Scott Walker (GOP Guv, WI) is doing.

About time.

Time to add Guv Walker (high) on the list of potential GOP candidates for 2012.

Let Palin, Christie and the rest, demonstrate to America, how they're more qualified. :)

OK but I’ll go on record first in support. Even while leaving Palin in my tagline. :)

YOU GO GUV.

Presently, not referring to Palin! This is how it’s done.

This is what has to happen. This is ... LEADERSHIP.

Ditto

Doing the right thing once does not merit a brand of exceptional.

Much too soon. Why is everyone always in such a hurry? Let him put in a term as governor first.

I agree that he has done well so far, but he hasn’t yet shown what he will accomplish.

Will he be able to stop RINO-inclined legislators from undermining his position? Will he push this one through, and then go on to do other good stuff?

We need to see whether he can follow through, and hang tough for the long haul. And he needs to gain administrative experience.

We need a party that is full of good, strong conservative leaders at every level. Which means that they have to prove themselves over time.

The guy is right.

He’s brave. And he’s the only one doing what he’s doing.

So lead, follow or get out of the way.

You can see my “dream ticket” below, and what a great move that would be for America! Imagine 8 years with Allen as President and Scott as VP and then 8 more years with Scott as President and maybe Sarah as VP!

Making a Wisconsin Freeper ping here too. Hope all have seen this! Yes, the Union owns the health insurance company that covers the teachers! Double, double, double dipping??

Whooooaa!! step back and take a deep breath. How about giving him some time for us to find out who he really is in the long run. I remember when Colin Powell stepped up, man, I thought he was great. Turned out he was a total liberal ass. Then Condi, I was talking about her being Presidential Material. But then she came out and outed herself as an Obama lover. Then now it's Chris Christie, yeah I like him too but now there are things coming out about gun control and other matters. Better not buy the horse only to find out later he is blind in one eye.Does Scott Brown, Republican of Mass. ring a bell?

Seriously. Unless and until the GOP shows even one single bit of bravery and defiance, I’ll take new over timid.

Without hesitation.

The RINOs need some competition. This is (exactly) the sort of competition they need.

It all depends on the result. If he succeeds and passes this bill - or fires all the teachers if they won’t clear the capitol - then we can begin to vet him on the other issues.

Deal.

Very rarely does one this clarity of vision. It’s exactly what we need.

If he caves, I’m so over him. One strike, and he’s out. But the more he’s causing the left to lose it - the more I’m admiring this guy.

Or lose the attitude.

It’s not a question of whack a mole. As I said, I like very much what he’s done so far. But he hasn’t actually DONE anything yet. He’s made a great start, but how about waiting to see whether he can carry it through.

Political leadership isn’t just about having good ideas or giving a good speech. It also involves putting those ideas into practice and/or getting them passed into law. That hasn’t been done yet.

Arnold Schwarzenegger came into office talking the talk about reducing spending and balancing the budget. He was weak on the social issues, but seemed to be strong on fiscal policy. He pushed it for a certain amount of time. And then he threw up his hands and surrendered.

Maybe a few of the RINOs will cave. Maybe he’ll compromise. Maybe they’ll grind him down. I hope not. But he needs to prove himself.

I believe strongly, in reverse Saul Alinsky.

At the drop of a hat, if I see libs hysterically attacking one of ours.

I rush to their support. Imagine. Blocking and neutralizing the left. Move for move.

THAT is what I’m talking about. Think about that. Imagine if Speaker of the House Gingrich, had stood his ground in 1994.

Imagine if Republicans, rather than cower and avoid conflict, took it to the left WITHOUT HESITATION.

If that’s a refreshing thought, perhaps you should focus on our opposition reflexively. Rather than our own.

Just something to consider. :)

Thanks.

I’m impressed by Rick Snyder despite the fact that I think he’s dead wrong on many issues. I’m impressed because he seems to be putting reality first rather than clinging to promises he made as recently as his state of the state address.

He said he wanted to put funding into education but is instead cutting funding which is in turn leading to a union fight here.

Agreed.

And I believe Walker has government administrative experience. However, let’s see whether, or how well he commands the Republican members of his legislature to achieve a suitable outcome before we put him at or near the top of the ticket.

Walker is the CEO of a government that at this moment is facing a microcosm of what the nation is, or will soon be facing. He very well may emerge as the only Republican politician who has hands on experience dealing effectively with that challenge. Folks should make no mistake as to who is conducting this round of “community organizing”; the executive ranks of the biggest unions in the U.S. include members of the Democratic Socialist of America.

I am not throwing Sarah under the bus, but I believe her experience was gained successfully dealing with corrupt political machinery and what we are looking at now is a different kind of hardball politics.

How is it exactly, we ever stood up to the Soviet Union.

I’m really having a difficult time remembering how we did that, recently.

Because that is exactly still what we’re up against.

I don’t see that sort of determination any more. It’s gone. In fact, I see avoidance, and denial. And a reflexive instinct, to whack-a-mole. We have become our own worst opponents.

IMHO.

Please how about, we focus on advancing our own side, and tirelessly opposing the left.

We seem far too ready to do exactly the opposite:

Tirelessly opposing our own, to the advancement of the left.

Just saying...

Walker needs to win this fight first.

That said, for Freepers not from Wisconsin, this guy is the original tea party. Conservative to the core. The only thing he has in common with Scott Brown is the first name.

And for the Palin fans, what Walker is doing here is sort of what I think we wished Palin could done. I.e. Gotten experience on the front line governing in a true battle against the socialistic State that exists in the US. (yeah, yeah, I know she served two years as a red state governor in a red state but what Walker is doing is taking it to what is essentially a blue State)

Draft Scott Walker? Not only no, but hell no.

Sure he's doing good stuff. But 2 years as governor is not enough experience to be considering a run for the presidency. It would be irresponsible, not to mention hubristic.

How is it that Obama always somehow becomes the standard for experience, when it comes to touting potential candidates who have inadequate experience? Walker has been governor for what ... a month? He hasn't even broken in his chair yet.

Not to pop your pickle, I like what Walker is doing right now, but it's far too early to put him at the top of any list.

Do you remember the posters who said they wanted Scott Brown for president after he won?

I don't think many here would suggest that now. Let's see how he does for a couple of years, maybe he'll be a superstar candidate down the road if he continues to be successful.
